A 24-year-old New Hampshire woman was charged with drunken driving after she was pulled over Friday night in Wilmington with a gas nozzle still hooked up to her Range Rover, police said.

The woman, identified by the Middlesex district attorney’s office as Alicia Esquilin, was arrested Friday night for operating under the influence of liquor, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and an open container violation, police said in a statement.

Esquilin was arraigned on Monday on those charges and released on personal recognizance, according to authorities. She is expected back in court on Oct. 16.

The woman was unable to stay in her traffic lane, and a hose from a gas station nozzle trailed behind her car as she drove, authorities said.

Wilmington police said in a Tuesday statement that they were “able to return the gas nozzle to [its] rightful owner.”
